Forms of Vehicle Transport from the United States to Monterrey.
While there are several forms of vehicle shipment, some of them are more practical than others. Depending on your budget and preference, one form of vehicle shipping might suit you better than the others.
Container Shipping- Container shipping is a method that requires the vehicle to be set inside of a large container aboard a ship. The container and the vehicle can be filled with belongings. The container can also be shared with another individual which will help lessen the cost. All belongings inside of the container and vehicle must be permissible by Mexican Customs.
RO/RO Shipping- RO/RO shipping is also referred to as the roll on, roll off method. This is because the empty vehicle must be rolled onto and off of the ship. The only items allowed in the automobile are a car jack, a spare tire and floor mats. This is the cheapest method of vehicle shipment from the U.S. However, not all ports will accept RO/RO shipping.
Air Shipping- Air shipping sounds like a wonderful option. It is best used for landlocked cities, but is typically too expensive. Many people avoid this option considering the price is so high.
Prior to selecting a form of vehicle shipment to Monterrey, one should contact the Embassy of Mexico. They will inform you of all the current regulations for vehicle shipment into the country.
